A nun gets raped inside a convent.
A 72 year old nun, gets brutally gangraped, inside a convent.
I wonder how all the people- the dickheads and the self righteous idiots and the politicians who say that rape is something women bring upon themselves- I wonder how they’re going to justify this one.
Was she dressed too provocatively? Was it her carelessness? Did she get too drunk or too wasted and decide to walk home half naked? Did she lead the men on and then refuse? Was she a tease who deserved it, who was asking for it?
A 72 year old nun.
Inside a fucking convent.
I don’t buy the religion argument. This is not a communal attack. She wasn’t punished for being too Christian. She was, sadly enough, a woman- that is her crime. That is the only thing anyone can hold the poor woman accountable for. Being a woman. A woman who was victimized, brutalized by those animals.
The arguments that are going to follow are going to be the same things everyone said the last time, and the time before that. They condemn the attack. Women’s rights groups will clamor for a while and quickly be pacified and silenced with promises. Someone’s going to blame religious activists, someone’s going to blame porn, yak yak yak, same things over and over again.
But here’s the thing. A nun got raped inside a convent. A house of God, where she spent years of her life doing nothing but serve. And it’ll happen again, to some school girl. Some woman walking home. Someone, someone, someone.
And no one will change one goddamn fucking thing.
